Forum: audio Subject: 'Normal' audio player not working

WinXP. Chrome, FF5 or IE7. Worked yesterday in FF and IE7.

The player gives an error tag below it saying my flash plugin is somehow inadequate, but it's wrong... The new player you all insist on using is inadequate. The player works in FF and IE7 in the 'new' mode, but I do not believe it works at all in Chrome (not verified), albeit it DOES display the audio items in Chrome.

So tell me... what was wrong with the Sourceforge XSPF Web Music Player? It worked flawlessly every time.

Edit: 11 am Friday July 8 2011 It's working now.

It DOES WORK on this page http://www.archive.org/details/tth_080715 though. What's up with that?

Not sure about your problem, but I notice the "normal" audio player doesn't show the tens digit on the file durations in FF5 nor Safari. A 26:00 track shows as being 6:00.

YOu know, I noticed that when I first observed the 'problem' I was having but I also hadn't edited the detail page yet to change the file designator to 128kbps MP3. When I did, the appropriate time appeared. Maybe related to reading the mp3 header.

Here's why... Since some time back, for some reason never addressed by the staff at IA that I've noted although I've mentioned it (Vehemently sometimes), the files I've been uploading as 128kbps mp3s get processed by the deriver and show up TAGGED as VBR files. The section of the mp3 that contains the tagging is in a different place in some VBR mp3 files and until I change that setting in the details page, I get no tags showing in the on-page player.

It may affect the time showing too.

FWIW, I'm not sure what caused my initial prolem but it cleared up as mysteriously as it started. The only thing that COULD HAVE affected it at my end was a rare Avast A/V program update requiring a restart... but I hadn't restarted yet.

I take that back. Even with the file format correctly set, look @ the second entry in the playlist. The correct time should be 10:58min +- and entry #1... 3:94?

ROTF ROTF ROTF!
